My 2008 Philippine Blog Awards Experience

Updated: September 22, 2014

The 2008 Philippine Blog Awards was successfully held last Sunday at the One Esplanade, SM Central Business Park, Pasay City.

Now on its second year, this special event hopes to recognize the finest blogs written by Filipinos all over the world.

Ready To Be Rich is one of the finalists this year for the Best Business / Entrepreneur Blog and Single Blog Post categories. Likewise, I was one of the nominees for the Blogger’s Choice Awards.

Getting these honor made the gathering more exciting and memorable for me.

Here’s a few pictures from that night.

Also, I would like to personally congratulate the winners for the Business / Entrepreneur category namely, Pinoy Web Startup for winning the Best Blog and Senor Enrique for the Single Blog Post award.

Likewise, I’d like to extend my congratulations to Winston of Batang Yagit for winning the Blogger’s Choice Award. If you voted for him, then go to Jehzlau’s blog and claim your free burger – seriously. πŸ˜€

It was a fun filled and productive night. Aside from being able to see my blogger friends, I was also able to meet new faces, give out some of my business cards to potential clients and quite surprisingly – I was given a very interesting business proposal which I’ll be looking more into in the next few weeks. πŸ˜‰

Again, congratulations to the organizers, the nominees, finalists and the winners of the 2008 Philippine Blog Awards! See you all again next year for the 2009 Philippine Blog Awards!

Lastly, if you’re interested in receiving articles about money, business and personal finance, then please subscribe to Ready To Be Rich. Thank you.

  3. Brother Congrats at kahit paano nasama tayo this year! Next ulet! Wow ang porma mo sa pic ha! Parang Ninong na kita! lol. Sayang di ko nakita sa personal si ChiQ!

  4. Hi Fitz,

    First time for me to visit your blog. All I can say is, great job and keep it up!

    Buti ka pa at naka attend ka ng PBA Awards Night. I’ve always wanted to be able to attend it since it was started last year. Hopefully makapunta ako next year. πŸ™‚

  5. @Ambo
    Ninong talaga?! Wah! πŸ˜€

    Yup, pareho kayo ni Ambo na hindi nakapunta. It was really a great night. It’s always nice to see the faces and meet the people behind the blogs that I follow. Thanks and hope to meet you soon.

  6. Fitz, Paano mo nagawa iyong may outline na gray ang pictures mo ? Kasi sa iyong gray outline makita ko sa WP write post pero pag publish sa post mawawala

  7. @Ambo
    Ah ok. Well dapat, uwi siya dito sa Pinas next year. Hehe.

    You mean, ‘yung caption sa pictures? Automatic ‘yan di ba? Feature that came with WordPress 2.6.

  8. Fitz: No, not the caption, iyong gray border around the pictures. Makita ko siya when I write the post but when I publish wala na siya, pero sa iyo meron.

  9. @Zigfred
    It must be your Prosense installation. I didn’t do anything to mine. Ganyan na siya when I upgraded to WordPress 2.6. Sorry I can’t be of much help with you this time.

  10. Sana makasama na din yung blog ko next year sa PBA 3. Magiging competitor kita Fitz kung sakali. Hehehe… πŸ™‚
